St. Francis School

st. francis louisville preschool

St. Francis School is a secular Preschool 2s – 12th grade Independent School dedicated to critical thinking and intellectual curiosity, where students learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think. In the Preschool, on a 64-acre campus, a nurturing learning community helps maximize the full and unique potential of each child. Their curriculum is based on the idea that “everything is developing,” therefore the focus is on the process of learning rather than the product of learning.

Through play and hands-on, minds-on activity, preschoolers learn about the world beyond themselves and the importance of working together. They become critical thinkers when they investigate, problem-solve, explore, and discover in the natural playground and open classroom settings. Their highly talented and skilled faculty craft experiences that build confidence, resilience, independence, compassion, cooperative social skills, and conflict resolution strategies in a joyful environment.

Come see what makes St. Francis School a leader in Progressive education by scheduling a tour with Trisha Amirault, Director of Enrollment, at 502-736-1009 or [email protected].
